Picked surface highlight colour mottled pattern?


I am comparing VX14.5 to ZW3D 2012 service pack one.

When I select a surface in VX 14.5, It prehighlights in yellow colour,and when picked stays a yellow colour.

In ZW3D 2012, it prehighlights in light sky blue colour and when selected a mottled texture pattern appears.
I cannot work well like this.
Can this selected face have a different solid colour rather than the texture pattern?
Thanks Mark

Hi Mark, Since the original highligh color is too dazzling and hard to distinguish if the original surface are using the same color with highligh color. So we use the marble texture with keeping the orginal surface.

Thank you for your kindly suggestions, we will consider it seriously and see that whether we can control the option in configuration.

Thank you for your information.

For me the 'marble' selection is unworkable, it makes the screen difficult for me, it is not working for me personally.

To have some choice would be perfect.
For me I an still sticking reluctantly with VX14.50

In previous versions the program could be configured to change the yellow to a colour of choice.

I would prefer that myself. To have the option.

I personally like the new effect, what makes it difficult? I am not faulting you just curious

1. Its slow on a high surface count model.
2. the effect when zooming makes the screen very distracting. Therefore not easy to follow what I may be picking, again slows me down.
3. It is the same colour, not different, for picked, same colour, but just with the marble effect.
I would like the choice of the old pick selection. Not saying revert back, but give me the option .
